- On December 1, 2020, the Baltic float WMO3902106 launched by IO PAN in 2018 within the Bornholm Basin was recovered by the Estonian vessel R/V Salme north of the island of Hiiumma. We thank Estonian friends for their help in this difficult operation (photos: Villu Kikas). This is the next, important stage of cooperation in the Baltic Sea. The float has been taking measurements for over two years, since September 11, 2018. During this time, it made 420 profiles, providing valuable CTD/O2 data. Also, examining the condition of the float (batteries, sensors) will certainly be a valuable contribution to the EA RISE program - more information on the project website.

6th March, Gdańsk, National Maritime Museum
For the second time the National Maritime Museum organized a seminar on the occasion of International Women's Day entitled "Girls on the Wave".
One of the speakers was Violetta Drozdowska, who appeared in absolutely good company: Captain Joanna Pajkowska, who in 2019 ended her lonely cruise around the Earth in 216 days, and Agata Bogusz - gold medalist in freediving, psychologist and personal trainer. The seminar was devoted to the role of women in the broadly understood maritime industry and allowed to take a really deep breath, think about how to reconcile motherhood with scientific work and learn the taste of loneliness on the high seas. The event was advertised under the motto: "Queen of the Seas for Women's Day. With such girls don't be afraid to go on the farthest cruise!"
